Note that the index entries in the topic index/alphabetic index could do with a careful review, and that several documents are still missing.  If someone would like to help with that, I'd appreciate it.  It's just a question of editing a smallish text file - very easy.

For each document on the site that is to be indexed, there is a set of lines in this file.  I will write a new one here.  This is an extremely complicated example compared to the norm:

Tutorial: Creating SVG Tiny Pages in Arabic, Hebrew and other Right-to-Left Scripts
	/International/tutorials/svg-tiny-bidi/
	^bidirectional algorithm^markup, and text direction^inline markup, and text direction^SVG Tiny
	Slide0040^direction property
	Slide0090^logical order^visual order^ordering bidi text
	Slide0140^direction property
	textAlign^text-align, and text direction
	textAnchor^text-anchor, and text direction
	Slide0220^directional context^context, directional^base direction^strongly typed characters^directional runs^neutral characters, text direction^digits and text direction^tspan, and text direction^RLM^LRM
	Slide0360^mirrored characters
	Slide0380^nesting directional runs^directional runs, nesting
	inline^tspan, and text direction
	Slide0420^overriding the bidi algorithm^bidi-override^unicode-bidi^direction property
	Slide0490^control characters, vs. bidi markup^bidi markup, vs. control characters^bidi control characters^LRE^RLE^LRO^RLO^PDF, control character

Line 1 is the title of the document, as it will appear in the index.
Line 2 is the uri of the document.
Line 3 is a sequence of keywords, separated by ^ related to the document as a whole
Lines 4 above are optional and only appear in some longer documents.  The lines start with a fragment identifier, followed by keywords specific to that fragment.  This allows for more precision in indexing longer articles.

That then gets read in by a PHP script I have, which churns out the index data as needed for use on the site.

Adding to the index is just a question of choosing an article, test, etc, and entering in the details and keywords.

If someone would like to help, I can send the text file for them to work on.  All currently indexed articles are listed in alphabetic order, so it's easy to see what needs doing.

Cheers,
RI
